The Weekend Angler - Guide To Good Fishing
The Weekend Angler's Guide to Good Fishing provides recreational anglers with the knowledge and instruction they need to enjoy a greater level of fishing success. This book was written for those who have some experience and know much of the terminology used to describe equipment, conditions, and other intricacies of fishing. It may not be the best resource for people who have never fished. If you don't know the difference between a spinning and baitcasting rod and reel, or the difference between monofilament and braided lines, you may struggle with some of the information provided in this book. But most of what you will read is basic information and useful knowledge for recreational anglers of all skill levels. The author provides guidance on finding productive places to fish, and choosing the best times to fish, for many of North America's most popular gamefish. Readers will also learn to select tackle, lures, and other equipment with an eye on expense, quality and performance. Advice is provided on how to find good fishing where the outdoor experience is less affected by competition from other anglers or poor conditions. And for those who have family members they would like to introduce to the sport, there are tips on how to teach a child or loved one to fish. For the advanced angler, a chapter on trophy fishing is included. References to the lighter side of fishing emphasize key points, make readers feel they are sharing in the experience described, and include enough humor to entertain those who enjoy reading about fishing as much as they enjoy doing it. The author provides guidance and information, but also entertains so the learning experience is enjoyable. All chapters are written in easy-to-understand language that includes pictures, charts, or diagrams to heighten interest and simplify understanding. Fishing is not a sport limited to highly trained athletes, to the rich, or to the experienced. Few sports offer an equal opportunity for success to men, women, and children of all ages and backgrounds. Whether you fish a few times a year, or whenever you can slip away, The Weekend Angler's Guide to Good Fishing will provide you the guidance and information needed to help you enjoy a greater level of angling success.
